chemicals that people say could leak into the water table. despite the controversy, america's energy boom added 1.2 million direct and indirect jobs to the economy last year. growing energy production in this country could boost average u.s. income by $2,000 a year mostly through savings on energy bills. that remains to be seen, but this production has the u.s. poised to overtake russia as the number one oil and gas producer in the world. that's according to an an sis by the "wall street journal" that was published on tuesday. >>> frac-ing in big energy boom states has bolstered america's energy output. already the u.s. produces 60% of all of the oil it uses according to the department of energy, much as changed in less than a decade. in 2005 those numbers were reversed. at the same time u.s. oil imports have fallen. saudi arabia still produces more crude oil than the u.s. and russia, but americans and russians produce far more natural gas. what is new is that the u.s. actually tapped more gas than russia did in 2012, something it hasn't done since the early '80s, and while the russi

the courageous, bold steps that we need to take to shift our planet in an energy rereolution that takes us to bringing down carbon pollution but doing it in a way that also generates millions of new jobs in an inclusive green economy of the future, if we were to do that, still the majority of people on this planet can be secure. so, yes, for some people it's too late, but for the majority of the planet there is still time. but that time is shrinking very, very fast. and, based on current practice of governments, if we continue like that over the next coming years, then, sadly, i think it will be too late. >> you know what you're up against. what you see as potential destruction happening faster and faster in the arctic the oil companies see as opportunity for drilling even deeper because there is reportedly a great deal of fossil fuel down there. >> well, let me give you a picture, all right? think about the gulf of mexico oil spill. >> bp. >> the bp oil spill. that oil spill required 6,000 vessels and thousands of people to actually clean up. you know how long it took. you know t

of the products to which they applied, in a very obvious way. food prices went up and energy prices went up. beyond that, these agricultural and energy products -- and especially the energy products -- are inputs to other productive processes, so other manufacturers have to use these things to produce other goods and therefore because they were suffering cost increases the prices of these other manufactured goods went up. schoumacher: the american economy was like a great fighter that had been stunned by an unexpected one-two punch, the food and energy supply shocks. this economic combination created something new, supply shock inflation and recession. people called it stagflation and it was to hammer at the american economy for years to come. why did it so confound economists of the day? we put that question to economic analyst richard gill. in the old days, you used to be able to divide economists into two groups, those who worried about stagnation and those who worried about inflation. what the food and energy shocks of the early 1970s proved was that both were right. economics c
